Keep a major goal in your crosshairs—and don’t get distracted—as the Sun and Jupiter compose a dynamic duet in the most ambitious parts of your chart. But that doesn’t mean walking a straight and narrow line today. Figure out ways to balance your social needs with your career aspirations. If splurging on the entrance fee for a virtual mastermind group means “mingling” with the people YOU think of as influencers, consider it an investment in your future. And if you need to take a couple hours to develop one of your bigger ideas, reschedule a Zoom date for the evening and hunker down to get those fleshed out. See the full week >
No matter how “magical” something looks or feels, keep a healthy dose of cynicism in place today, Taurus. With the Sun and rosy-eyed Jupiter lowering your defenses, you could fall under the spell of a snake-oil salesman. If an offer seems too good to be true, it probably is. And if people rush you to sign on any dotted lines or cough up a down payment, find a reason to slip away—and feel no pressure to come back. It’s much harder to get out of situations like these that it is to fall into them. See the full week >
Keeping a secret won’t be easy under today’s candid Sun-Jupiter square, but do your best to lock confidential information in the vault. Even if you’re sharing out of concern, your blurts could come back to haunt you. Be careful who you bring into your confidence, and instead of getting wrapped up in other people’s dramas, broaden your horizons with some cultural activities. Stream an Oscar-nominated movie, take in a TED talk or log in for an evening yoga class. See the full week >
YOU know that you’ve got what it takes to lead a mission, but are other people aware of your skills? Don’t let your magic live on as a “secret power,” Cancer. Under today’s galvanizing Sun-Jupiter mashup, seek out opportunities to advance your professional status. It’s not rude to ask people, “Can I send you over a pitch deck?” (Okay, maybe make it the third or fourth question instead of your lead.) Don’t be shy about marketing yourself—and dress the part if you’re going to be on webcam! Your stylish sign knows how powerful aesthetics can be. See the full week >
Peek out of your den, Leo—no matter how brisk the morning air might be. With the Sun getting a nudge from nomadic Jupiter, you need to breathe some unfiltered oxygen and enjoy the feeling of moving your body. If you don’t have a yard, keep the required six feet of distance and go somewhere that’s both safe and semi-secluded. Prefer to stay inside? Organize your friends for an online fitness class. You can catch up with homemade smoothies afterward and share what you’ve each been doing to stay sane and grounded. See the full week >
Save the taupe and “greige” for another day, Virgo. From your sartorial choices to your political opinions, a dynamic duet of the Sun and Jupiter urges you to make a bold statement. People have always considered you a role model for living out loud, even if lately you’ve been keeping your stronger points of view under wraps in order to keep the peace. But no more of that! Today, people will be inspired by your uncensored courage, whether you’re Tweeting about governmental policies or letting the object of your affections know how thirsty you’re REALLY feeling.

You hate to disappoint a friend in need—or to miss a happening group video chat. But some days, you just have to resist the pressure to keep up appearances. You may be feeling depleted or introspective, and that’s fine. If you’re craving another person’s voice, download an audiobook and listen to it while preparing a healthy dinner. A word to the wise: Let calls from agitating relatives go to voicemail. Today, they’ll have to solve their problems without Coach Libra. See the full week >
No need to lower the blinds if you want a little shade. Thanks to today’s agitating Sun-Jupiter square, you’ll be throwing some of it yourself. Under this magnifying transit, people’s annoying “quirks” can really get under your skin. Breathe, Scorpio, breathe. Let this be your signal to engage in some immediate self-care. Take a long bubble bath or go for a walk where you can keep a safe distance from others. If you’ve been squabbling with a good friend (or feel a fight brewing), let her know that you’re taking the day to yourself and that you’ll get back to her “soon.” See the full week >
All that glitters may not be gold—but that won’t stop you from pressing “add to cart” indiscriminately. With a decadent Sun-Jupiter mashup overhead, you’re more susceptible than usual to retail therapy urges. If you’re trying to save up, don’t go browsing luxury goods “just for the fun of it.” Not today, when your impulse control is next to nil. By the same token, don’t deprive yourself of gorgeous aesthetics. How about taking one of the virtual tours that museums are offering? Need to make your shelter more chic? Check out interior designer Kelly Wearstler’s webinar on MasterClass.com and get inspired by objects you already own. See the full week >
Familiarity can breed contempt today as Jupiter in your sign catches shade from the feisty Aries Sun. Yesterday, it was all love with your soul squad and favorite relatives. Today, even their most endearing traits will grate on your nerves. At moments like this, your best course of action is to just take some space—even if that means drowning them out via headphones or going for a solo drive. Better that than to lash out at them for an innocent “mistake” or, worse, for simply being in your space. See the full week >
Your heart—and the rest of you—could use a break from playing caretaker to everyone around you. If you’re not sheltering in place, can you use one of your personal days for some time off? And if you ARE working from home, grab that cozy throw and make yourself a pillow fort as your “office.” Whatever your non-work hours may be, do what you can to make them more self-nurturing. Invest in a French press for brewing up loose-leaf tea or a pair of noise-canceling headphones for playing meditative music…and drowning out relatives and roomies when you need a moment.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Shake up your routines under today’s galvanizing Sun-Jupiter square—yes, even if they’ve already been thrown into a tailspin. This biannual mash-up calls for spontaneity and adventure, and you’ll have to find it any way you can. Locate the wiggle room on your agenda and allow yourself to be led by your whims for an hour or so. This could lead you down a crafting wormhole or on a recipe research mission. And hey, no one has to know that you were prepping food for the slow cooker if you mute during the 10AM conference call…or that you’re wearing pajama bottoms with your silk blouse!
